  1. It’s Ieva Skuja who appears in the Marc Jacobs ads. She’s represented by the Karin Models agency in New York. Quite a few Latvian models can be seen on theones2watch.com, including women such as Agneta Januševica and Ilze Ciematniece, as well as men with names such as Aigvars, Ģirts and Mārtiņš.
